WESTMINSTER, Md. (AP) — Carroll Community College will soon arm some of its campus safety officers for the first time.

The school and the county sheriff’s office signed an agreement Monday, a week after the college’s Board of Trustees voted to approve arming campus officers.

Executive Vice President of Administration Alan Schuman says arming officers will better protect the campus during critical situations.

The majority of the six full-time officers are retired law enforcement officers with experience carrying a firearm. They will be armed when the program is instituted in the next few months.

The college’s Office of Public Safety and Security will have jurisdiction over minor property crimes, alcohol violations and disorderly conduct complaints. The sheriff’s office will investigate violent crimes, missing persons reports and all drug violations.
